Disability Support Services (DSS) works with faculty and other members of the LMU community to assure that accommodations are provided to students who have established a disability that limits them in a major life activity. The goal of accommodation is to provide a fair and equal opportunity.

Students with disabilities frequently are entitled to classroom and testing accommodation, so participation of faculty is very important. Working together helps to ensure the integrity of a Loyola Marymount University education, while meeting our obligations to assist students with disabilities.

The information on the following pages help to explain faculty rights and responsibilities as well as helpful information regarding working with students who have been approved for accommodations. DSS strongly encourages faculty to contact our office if questions arise regarding any disability issue.
